Public Swimming Pool and Spa Inspections

Environmental Health staff conduct routine inspections of indoor and outdoor swimming pools, spa pools, and water slides and investigate complaints regarding swimming pool/spa sanitation. All public pools and spa pools are required to have their water tested for bacterial quality monthly, and should be under the operational supervision of a Certified Pool-Spa Operator. Some items checked during these inspections include, but are not limited to: water clarity; safety equipment; proper construction and operation of the pool’s circulation and disinfection systems; proper disinfection levels of the pool’s water; and facilities such as the bath house and pool area are kept clean and sanitary.
